Black Forest coach gives credit to Sankoyo

Black Forest head coach, Gilbert Mushangazhike has given credit to Sankoyo Bush Bucks for displaying a sterling performance despite their loss against his team.

His boys beat Ngurungu 1-0 in a competitive encounter in which both teams were eyeing to clinch to get maximum points to stay in the top eight.

Mushangazhike said Sankoyo was a very strong and competitive team and that it was not easy to win.

“My boys were well prepared as we lost two encounters in a row and our aim was to win and improve our position in the log standing,” he added.

The game started at a slow pace as both teams players were not showing their intentions up until Black Forest came to their senses and in 24th minute through an easy pass well taken by their striker, Donald Botshoma.

The goal made Sankoyo to lose concentration and kept on chasing the ball, making short passes which did not bore any fruit.

In the second half, both teams continued with a cold play but Sankoyo had an upper hand as they made some good attempts to equalise but it was not their day.

It seemed like Black Forest read all their movements as all the departments were intact frustrating all the efforts advanced by their opponents.

The situation prevailed until the last whistle and the Mankgodi based team emerged victorious.

For his part, Sankoyo head coach, Philani Mabhena revealed that his boys were not up to their best ability, adding that change of date for the encounter was one of the factors that disturbed his boys.

The game was supposed to be played last weekend but it was postponed to March 4 because Black Forest were still mourning the loss of their public relation officer who was laid to rest last weekend at Mmankgodi.

Mabhena said the game was very bad noting that during the first half their rivals controlled the game, but that his boys improved and dominated in the second half to no avail.

He also agreed that the absence of key defender, Modiredi Matengu had an impact, adding that “we lacked a leader in the defence hence our rivals had an opportunity to easily penetrate and score,” he added.

Sankoyo will host Lobatse giants, Extension Gunners next weekend at Maun Sports Complex.

Mabhena vowed that they would intensify their preparation and fight with everything they have to win the encounter. ENDS
